The tapering triangular 950sqm site stands
proudly in a prominent position, with
a northwesterly aspect out to the ocean, so it was
imperative the design positioned the living areas
intelligently to exploit coastal views.
A tiered landscape pathway at the front
navigates the constraints of the sloping site
and leads up to the impressive entry foyer.

ample car parking and ancillary spaces, as
per the clients’ request.
Curved forms and expressed cantilevers
create the dramatic, striking design the
clients were looking for.
When entering the home, the main living
areas and generous master suite are on the
ground floor, with the bedroom and gym wings
wrapping around the pool to create privacy and
intimate entertaining spaces.
The upper floor expresses itself as a raw
concrete shell, meticulously detailed to
create a textural form, and seemingly floating
over an expanse of frameless glazing. The
interiors are a faultless continuation of
the external forms and finishes.
